Your company is active in coastal shipping, which is dominated by major shipping companies who hold the largest market shares. The deregulation of maritime transport within the EU marks the beginning of a new era in coastal shipping services and reflects the efforts made during the last years by the sector's large players to strengthen their position so as to be able to better respond to the forthcoming free competition. The major coastal shipping companies are active in the domestic market for passenger and vehicle transport (Crete, Cyclades, Dodecanese, North Aegean Islands, Ionian Islands), and also have a very strong presence in services running between Greece and Italy, where the market operates under conditions of free competition.
Albeit active in the same sector, all shipping companies do not have the same needs. Differentiation in your needs is the result of the conditions, particularities and requirements of the market in which your company operates, in combination with the specific goals which you have set for the development of your company.
In realising your investment plans and decisions, you must address a complex set of interrelated needs that require prompt and efficient management. Capital raising, guarantees, financing tools, currency and credit risk management, treasury management, and acquisition, leasing or exploitation of real estate, equipment and transportation, are just some of your most important needs.
Emporiki Bank meets the individual requirements of each shipping company separately, through a modern, comprehensive, flexible and competitive range of products and services comprising financing tools, loans, treasury management, currency and credit risk management, guarantees, insurance, leasing, and acquisition-management-exploitation of real estate, equipment and transportation.
